ceo jack welch said the books had been cooked. >> i have no evidence, i just raised the question. >> while mitt romney's wife was working the phones, the vice presidential candidates were getting ready for their big showdown, hoping to make a difference on the big stage. >>> now the 11 insta-weather forecast with john collins. >> the front coming through these clouds, moving to the east. most of this was on the eastern shore. now the skies had cleared for the most part. this cold front, and it is doing what a cold front does, dropping the temperature. 79 high at the airport, right before noon, then the temperature starting falling. we're in the mid-60s now. the low today will be at midnight, probably in the 50's. the typical high this time of year is 70. the typical low is 49, so definitely becoming more autumn- like. the temperatures in the 70's on the lower eastern shore, a thin green and darker green and blue, indicating cooler temperatures, 40's and oakland in garrett county. the satellite image, the air has been pretty dry. the front did have -- did not have much to work wit

. but some nay sayers wonder if it is too good to be true. jack welch, former ceo, tweets unbelievable jobs numbers, the chicago guys will do anything, can't debate, so change numbers. and one group suggested maybe somebody played with the numbers. >> very good timing for the president. if he mapped it out to be able to have it, this is one you would want to have. he placed the unemployment as the longest time in history knew. >> but the labor department scoffed at the notion that anybody manipulated the jobs report. >> it is collected by the interviewers who are all career federal employees. so you would have to imagine that the people who participate in the survey, and they do this voluntarily, are for some reason trying to manipulate things. >> and it is not unusual for the surveys, one based on asking the companies, the other based on asking individuals, to have a wide difference, why? the household survey shows all sorts of workers, including self-employed and certain agriculture workers. and it is based on a much smaller sample than the other businesses. keith hall says that the numbe

. not everyone convinced, though. yesterday jack welch, the former chairman and ceo of ge, tweeted unbelievable job numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate, so change numbers. he's obviously very influential man. when he tweets, people listen. is there any way that these kinds of numbers can be manipulated? >> he tweets, people listen, they retweet, they write about it and we certainly talked about it a lon on cnbc. the fact of the matter is the bureau of labor statistics has been calculating this number since 1948. it's a scientific survey. they poll 140,000 businesses. you definitely have a giant sample here. what some people are saying is a possibility is that the type of businesses sampled were ones that were skewed towards jobs added. those place where is they might have add more part-time workers. we also saw a giant jump in the number of people employed from the age group of 20 to 24. the biggest jump since 1964. some of these businesses that employed more young people being pulled? it's unlikely. it's really an issue of how much data you can actually get together in 3

, especially from somebody as prominent as jack welch. what does it say about partisanship in the country? >> it says that it starts to rot people's brains. the theory is just -- we need a good name for this. i nominate job nutters. but this really is ridiculous. this is -- first things first, this is good news for the country. and, yes, it benefits the president because it adds to argument. it takes away the argument that unemployment rate's been over 8%. it's a positive sign for the country. and frankly, it gives the president a boost in the wake of a terrible debate performance. but bottom line, it's a sign that the trend is moving away from the debt sweep we've dealt with. >> let me pick up on that. some democrats are saying what debate? how much of a boost does it really give the president, given the lackluster nature of his performance the other night? >> it doesn't give the president a do-over. he had a lousily first debate. that hurts. it's not determinative. the economy's issue number one. this is a boost. it helps change the topic. but it doesn't erase that first debate. the pre

numbers so wrong. jack welch went further obviously the former ceo of g.e. and he said unbelievable jobs numbers. the these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so they change the numbers. set person who suggested something fishy was going on. >> and of course our own lou dobbs has said no the bureau of labor statistics is insulated entity and peter morris is i on our show a short time ago said no, this isn't the case that they would never cook the books for a white house. that's not something they would do. they are economists and statisticians and there might be anomaly in the numbers. here was jack welch yesterday talking to cavuto and he said something smells funny here, listen. >> these numbers don't smell right when you think about where the economy is right now. every economist this morning predicted roughly 90 to 120,000 and 8.2 unemployment came out very favorably just one tenth of a point below when the president took office. >> well, it's funny when people manipulate numbers back and forth on both sides. i always think about the 23 million people who don't have a job an
